For the past couple weeks you have probably been seeing #banbossy all over the internet and haven’t be sure what it is all about. We are here to help clear that up for you! Lean In and Girl Scouts have partnered up to create a movement of girl leadership. The campaign is encouraging girls to speak up and stand out at their schools and for the community to stop using descriptive words like “bossy” to describe these young girls.
Words are extremely impactful, especially in the life of a young girl so when they get called words like “bossy” or “pushy” they are less likely to participate in future activities and take leadership roles. The Ban Bossy campaign wants to change this stigma and elevate girls to be the best leader they can be.
Their website www.banbossy.com is filled with helpful information and leadership tips. Girls, parents, teachers, managers, and troop leaders can download the tips and help ban bossy. So join the movement along with prominent female figures like Sheryl Sandberg and Beyonce and #banbossy today!
